Here is a basic mat pilates intro class that you can do at home. This gives you a look inside to our classes at the studio. Mat pilates is a great place for almost anyone to start. When people call me and tell me they have had a back injury, have knee or hip problems or are just beginning, I feel comfortable starting them with the basic mat routine. There are multiple modifications we can make to accommodate their special needs and make them feel successful.
If you have a back injury, please consult your physician or chiropractor before doing this video at home, since we are not able to assess your injury and make modifications.
Don’t be fooled though. If you do the mat exercises correctly, it is not a “phone it in” type of class!
